THE Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Hon. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum met with staff from The Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa to discuss the 2020-2021 Fijian National Budget.
The A-G highlighted that the new budget announced is aimed at assisting Fijians and encouraged them to make use of incentives provided by the Fijian Government, such as the generous support provided to first home builders and buyers and loans to start new businesses.
He explained how hotel workers and others affected by this pandemic would be able to access assistance provided to them by the Fijian Government through the Fiji National Provident Fund.
The A-G has also re-emphasised the need for all Fijians to download the careFIJI app on their mobile phones as digital contact tracing has been seen as an effective tool in COVID-19 containment efforts.
